New ebook: Family Tree

I have a new ebook available for pre-ordering.

Family Tree is a story that's very close to my heart. Originally published in 2008 (in Helix #7), in part it's a what-if about the Apollo programme, but mostly it's about the importance of teachers. I think Family Tree will resonate with a lot of readers.

This ebook will be released simultaneously in Kindle and epub formats on January 5th, 2015. However, it is available to pre-order now, from Amazon and Smashwords (iTunes, Kobo, B&N soon). UK/EU readers can pay less VAT if they pre-order Family Tree before January 1st.

Moondust Memories a pound a go

The Kindle edition of my SF collection Moondust Memories is available to purchase from Amazon.co.uk for just £0.99 (plus VAT) from today until midnight on 20 November. It's been price-matched down to $1.57 on Amazon.com.



Review quotes for Moondust Memories:

"The tell-tale sign of great speculative fiction is that you are still thinking about it days after you finish reading. This has been the case for me with Moondust Memories. Highly recommended."
(Dylan Hearn)

"In summary, 'Moondust Memories' is a rewarding read in the best possible way. A wonderful collection of thought-provoking and challenging stories that you will enjoy whether you're a fan of sci-fi or not." (Paul Laville).

PSA

Due to security concerns, I've replaced all the shortened URL links on my website with direct links to the appropriate webpages.

Obviously, it's not practical to remove all such links in my posts, but I will delete the most recent examples on here, likewise on LJ and FB, also tweets.

(It's been a fun few days...)

Flash Fiction Fail

Prompted by the recent change in SFWA membership qualification rules, which fellow author Deborah Walker noted a few days ago, I've blogged about flash fiction as a distinct category on my web-site: http://www.vaughanstanger.com/blog.
Feel free to comment/discuss either there or here. I've also posted about this on Facebook.

(** I should emphasise that I'm not and never have been a member of SFWA, and feel I have no particular need to be at this stage of my career.)

The Ultimate Show in Brazil

For the duration of the World Cup (ends 13 July), I'll be donating 80% of any royalties I receive from sales of The Ultimate Show to Oxfam, a British charity easing suffering throughout the world. What's more, I'll donate 100% of any winnings I receive from the TTA Press World Cup sweepstake (I've drawn Germany) and round the donation total up to the next £10.

Included in The UItimate Show is 'Extra Time', a short story suitable for soccer/football fans and avoiders alike.

The Ultimate Show is available in Kindle format from all branches of Amazon, also in epub format
from Kobo, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords. If you'd like to support this charity promotion, please go to my website's Books page and follow the link to the appropriate on-line store, which will take you to my author page and links to all my ebooks.
